The University provides round trip bus service from North to South Campus during the Fall, Winter, and Spring semesters while classes are in session. Service begins at 7:15 a.m. on weekdays and at 10:00 a.m. on weekends. Service ends daily at 2:15 a.m.
Please be advised that it is not feasible to use shuttle bus services between North and South Campus within the standard 10-minute class break. Students should plan and develop class schedules that allow time to be transported between the two campuses through the use of open class periods.
The North/South campus shuttles run:
For other shuttle service days/times, see Services and Schedules.
See North/South Campus Shuttles: Fall and Spring Semesters on the Services and Schedules page for the service days/times of each route. The Bus Stop Maps page provides a map of each route with bus stops.
Unfortunately, no. We’ve investigated along with the bus company and there are no safe, open spaces for the buses to pull over to pick up and drop off passengers.
The SEPTA 104 stops at Church Street and provides local service to Philadelphia.
The SEPTA 92 stops along High Street and goes to the Exton Mall.
The ChesCo SCCOOT bus stops on New Street, just north of Rosedale Avenue, connecting West Chester to WCU, Kennett Square, West Grove, and other destinations to Oxford.
When the driver is trying to merge into traffic, they are looking in their driver’s side mirror so they may safely enter the travel lane. You may think they see you, but their attention is on the other side of the bus.
For everyone’s safety, they have been instructed not to pick up passengers away from the curb.
When a bus is late, it may pick up more passengers. Any subsequent buses are not slowed by picking up passengers because the lead bus has them.
WCU tries to combat bus bunching by having buses wait at both Church Street and the SC Apartments. It may seem that the buses are idling for no reason, but spacing the buses does help with bunching.
